Media Roundtable: Trump′s American Carnage & The Plight Of Central American Refugees




On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we're discussing Trump’s American Carnage, a new FRONTLINE documentary that traces Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, his appeal to white nationalists, his election lies, and how it all led to a mob attack on the US Capitol.


Later in the show, we'll discuss President’s Biden’s task force to reunite separated immigrant families and the plight of thousands of asylum seekers, mostly from Honduras, who are trying to get to the United States.
